    I’ve stayed in Fife all my life and I’ve never heard of Burntwood (no 247)

    It can’t be true – I just looked up at the size of Barassie, rank 558 in your list – I was expecting quite a small place but BANG – this can’t be right.
    Have a look 55.558738,-4.655592
    It seems no filled the last census here properly.. lol

    Nice list but I don’t think they would be accurate by any sort of exact numbers.
